Stop Police Brutality!
Stop Police Occupation of our
Support the Hunger Strike at Pelican Bay and California prisons!
Stop the Torture! Prisoners are human beings!
Across the U.S., Black, Brown and other poor neighborhoods are treated like occupied territory by increasingly militarized armies of law enforcement. People are harassed, with massive campaigns of “stop and frisk”*, criminalized, brutalized, murdered for their perceived status – socioeconomic, immigration, mental health, and/or racial, gender or sexual identity. Charles Hill killed by Bart police at Civic Center Bart and Kenneth Harding shot down in S.F. Bayview by SFPD over a $2 muni fare! Oscar Grant, Raheim Brown, Brownie Polk, Derrick Jones, Andrew Moppin, Gus Rugley, Fred Cook, Guy Jarreau, Vihn Bui, Jodie Woodfox, – just some of the lives stolen from the Bay Area, while across the country from city after city police murder is at epidemic proportions! *New York police, for example, are on target in 2011 to stop and frisk 700,000 people, 85% Black and Latino.
October 22 -- a day to connect all the pieces of the whole “war on the people” being waged: The total illegitimacy of “stop and frisk”, the outrageous injustice of mass incarceration, the systematic criminalization of a generation, police brutality and murder-- with protest and determined political resistance!
Wear Black! Fight Back!
